Nice large woods but agree with comments about play area are true, needs more bins and better grass cutting and preferably better maintained equipment...poss a permanent cafe?

Nice woodland, not too 'perfect' i.e. no man made footpaths etc. Dog walkers are considerate and saw only a couple of 'poos' but on the whole a very clean wood. Could do with being a bit more clearly marked out - as in walks, distance,...More
